“Poignant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Only the steeple tower remains from the WWII bombing firestorm which ravaged the city and is now devoted as a poignant reminder of the despair of war. Great views from the tower (it's still fire-marked and is rather eerie) and the exhibition is currrently in transition.

“Memorial”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

German style memorial of war. Half-ruined church tower. Now it is beind restored partly. I think you should not look for it intentionally. But if you happen to be near it is going to make you stop for a while and think.

“Great view from the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Getting on top of the tower was a memorable experience. The view on the city is fantastic. However, I wouldn't advice it to those who fear height. It might feel scary :)

“WWII”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

A sad moment in history but a great monument in the honor of those who died during the WWII. Since a wing is in work is not worthed to climb to the roof. If you want to have a look from the above go to St Michael.

“St. Nicolai at night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We walked from the Rathaus area down to the harbor area and on the way stopped at this memorial. It is very awe inspiring at night although you don't have the guides that might be available during the day. There was no crowd at all. We walked around and took pictures and just absorbed the atmosphere. The ruin was impressive.
